Consistency Is All I Want
Right now, there are only a few things that are consistent in my life.
I go to work every weekday. I go to church every Wednesday evening and Sunday morning. I go to bed between 10 and 11 and wake up between 5 and 6 (sometimes 7).
Other than that, I don’t have a lot of habits floating around. Most days look different. I really want to change that.
I NEED Exercise
It’s a staple that needs to be in my life.
It’s the cornerstone of a lot of things - it increases my water intake and energy, reduces stress, and boosts self-confidence.
I simply can’t ignore something that applies to so many things in my life.
The thing is, where do I fit it in within a day?
I can workout / run at 5 AM. Or, I could do it at 8 PM. That’s about it.
I could do it at work / at the canal at work, or at home.
If I were to work out at the canal at work in the mornings, I would need to have a seriously involved evening routine. Which might actually be the thing I need.
I would have to get up at 5 - put on my workout clothes, and walk out the door with my stuff.
I’d get to work at 5:40, and run until 6:20. Then I’d shower and stuff to get me to about 6:45.
I could then plan for the day and make my most important tasks lists.
Then I could spend 2 - 3 hours on stuff that I need to get done personally.
That puts me at 10 AM. I’d then work until 4 PM.
Then I can come home and initiate my involved evening routine.
I want to be getting into the word more. It’s something that is long overdue and I need to amplify it if I want to see more personal growth.
I could make that part of my morning routine at work, and part of my evening routine.
Even a half-hour of my 7 to 10 AM time is enough for right now.
That, and affirmations / gratefulness exercises.
I’m just thinking outloud here.
